Although they are perceived as safety features for the passengers, the bumpers are actually designed to protect the vehicle itself.

Although you might think it’s ideal for us to simply repair any type of damage your vehicle’s bumper may have sustained, that may not always be the case. Unfortunately, there will be situations where a bumper must be replaced, as a repair service will not be able to recover the component’s structural integrity. Not sure what service your vehicle’s bumper needs? Here are a couple of determining signs you can look out for.
When inspecting the bumper, look for any cracks. Although there are cases where a cracked bumper can be repaired, most situations will call for a replacement service. When a bumper is cracked, much of its structural integrity is compromised and cannot be regained with a simple repair. That means your vehicle may be susceptible to more damage, which could result in a repair bill that’s more expensive than the original replacement service.
The hooks on your vehicle’s bumper help it stayed attached to the valance panel, grill, and splash guard. If it experiences damage, the bumper could start hanging from your vehicle or completely fall off. Once the hooks are damaged, the bumper must be replaced and, unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do once this happens.
